I thought I would post this here in case anyone knows.
 
I was reading, and noticed a lot of drug info website state that Imitrex or Zomig can affect your blood sugar levels.  Yet none of the websites state what it does to the sugar levels, if it raises or lowers the sugar level.
 
 
Does anyone here know for sure?
 
I had my blood tested by my doctor recently, and he said the glucose level was a little high.  Although when I tested it with my fathers meter, it was normal.  I had eaten just before I went in to see him also (I didn't know he was going to do that blood test) 
 
I've also read that Beta Blockers such as Atenolol can affect the blood sugar levels (which I also take).

Unless you're diabetic or have significant problems with your blood sugar levels you have no reason to be concerned.

Drugs.com offers drug information that can be presented in various degrees of detail (e.g. "concise", "detailed", "med facts", "advanced", "professional", and also "side effects"). You can tell which you're looking at by the URL: www.drugs.com/cdi indicates consumer drug information, a more general overview that only lists the most common and the most severe side effects. You can find the more comprehensive list at http://www.drugs.com/sfx/zomig-side-effects.html (and http://www.drugs.com/sfx/imitrex-side-effects.html for Imitrex).

Taking Imitrex rarely causes hyperglycemia but may also cause hypoglycemia. Zomig however has only been found to cause hyperglycemia (again, rarely).
